LLV

LLV enables you to record and play back live link frames, sent by Epic Games' ARKit face capture iOS app.

Issues and discussion

Checkout the wiki for more information on creating issues.

Quick start

Checkout this video, on how to setup LLV to be used with the MetaHuman example project.

Usage

Create or use recordings

Record

Listens for 256 incoming frames on all interfaces and standard port 11111 and writes the recording to a file named dao.gesichter.

python llv.py record --frames 256 --output dao.gesichter

Replay

Play one of the example recordings and send it to a host machine at 10.0.0.69 with implicit standard port of 11111 and 60 frames per seconds.

python llv.py play --host 10.0.0.69 examples/dao.gesichter

Inspecting or changing recordings

Recordings are stored as lines of base64 encoded frames. You can unpack recording files, to create a cleartext version, letting you inspect the frames as a json array. If you'd like to create your own frames by hand or script, you can pack it for the use with LLV.

Unpacking

python llv.py unpack examples/dao.gesichter dao.klare-gesichter

Packing

python llv.py pack dao.klare-gesichter dao.gesichter

Anatomy

Frame layout

The packet sizes of a frame are defined in the engine code as:

//                                         PacketVersion                    FrameTime                     BlendShapeCount Blendshapes                                        SubjectName             DeviceID
const uint32 MAX_BLEND_SHAPE_PACKET_SIZE = sizeof(BLEND_SHAPE_PACKET_VER) + sizeof(FQualifiedFrameTime) + sizeof(uint8) + (sizeof(float) * (uint64)EARFaceBlendShape::MAX) + (sizeof(TCHAR) * 256) + (sizeof(TCHAR) * 256);
const uint32 MIN_BLEND_SHAPE_PACKET_SIZE = sizeof(BLEND_SHAPE_PACKET_VER) + sizeof(FQualifiedFrameTime) + sizeof(uint8) + (sizeof(float) * (uint64)EARFaceBlendShape::MAX) +  sizeof(TCHAR)        +  sizeof(TCHAR);

This results in the minimum frame size being 264 bytes and the maximum being 774 bytes.

The layout is defined as:

  • PacketVersion -> 1 byte (uint8_t)
  • FrameTime -> 16 bytes (int32 + float + int32 + int32)
  • BlendShapeCount -> 1 byte (uint8_t)
  • List of blenshape values -> Blendshape Count * 4 bytes (float)
  • Subject Name -> Name Length * 1 byte (char)
  • Device ID -> ID Length * 1 byte (char)

There are a maximum of 61 blendshapes supported. See the apple ARKit docs for more info.
